I'm a Liverpool fan ever since I was 12 years old, and now I'm 33. Nothing too fancy here, except for the fact that I'm uruguayan, and that I came to know Liverpool through the Championship Manager games (now known as Football Manager).
Of course I am a fan of Uruguay, the team I consider has the greatest determination and team spirit in the World Football stage. Players like Cavani, Suárez, Forlán, Diego Pérez, Lugano, all are fighters, but most of all they put the team beyond their own personal glories.
I grew up listening to the Garra Charrúa tales. The Garra Charrúa is the undying spirit to never give a match as lost until the whistle blows. Many miracles and epic battles were won this way.
Thanks for the praise on the Ye Shiwen/Katie Ledecky article!
